Virtual Memory with 32-bit Snow Leopard Kernel (MacBook Pro)

Last updated 2010-04-27 - Send Feedback

This page shows the results using the 32-bit Snow Leopard kernel.

As can be seen by comparing with the 64-bit results, performance of virtual memory with the 32-bit kernel is awful. Switch to the 64-bit kernel for virtual memory and other performance improvements.
